Two Mustang Shelby GT500s crashed before they even arrived at the dealership
An image that the owners would not want to see
It was certainly not the best day for this driver who was in charge of transporting two vehicles that were extremely popular with all car lovers. The images, which are difficult to bear in the eyes of fans, show that the trip ended badly for two brand new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500s.
The accident occurred on the I-75 on the north side of Detroit in the United States. The two muscle cars could not reach their destination and found themselves on the side, in the middle of the traffic lanes. It is not known if the vehicle that was towing the trailer, a black Ford F-350, is the only one involved in this accident.
From the pictures, it appears that the pickup driver approached a turn a little too quickly, causing the rear of the vehicle and its trailer to skid. The latter then lay down on the asphalt. This accident, at first sight spectacular, did not cause any injuries. It is the owners who will have to be patient, while waiting for other vehicles to be delivered.
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the most powerful road legal Ford ever produced. Its 5.2L V8 produces 770 hp and 847 Nm (625 lb-ft) of torque. This engine is combined with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Customers can opt for the Carbon Fiber Track, which includes 20-inch carbon wheels and a specific rear wing. This seems to be the case with the green example in the images.
